Amongst the highlights of the weekend included some outstanding show gardens, a Saxon and Viking re-enactment group, music by the Aylsham Brass Band and local ironmongers and willow weavers in action.

The two day event raised £3,123 which will be shared out between the two local charities of the Aylsham Scouts and the Aylsham Roman Project.

Woodgate Nursery and Rusty Robot Occasions would like to thank everyone who visited the show and helped them to raise so much for their chosen charities.

Peter Purdy, owner of Woodgate Nursery, commented,

‘The show just gets better and bigger every year with so much variety the show is a great day out for keen gardeners and families alike.

I would especially like to thank all the exhibitors who put in a lot of hard work and really do make the Woodgate Garden Show so enjoyable. I’m already looking forward to 2020!’

About Woodgate Nursery

A traditional plant nursery located just outside the beautiful market town of Aylsham, the business was established in 1982 by Peter Purdy as a hobby.

With a passion for gardening, Peter started growing plants on a plot of land backing on to this house, selling his creations by the roadside. Fast forward a few years and today this hobby has grown into Woodgate Nursery. A thriving business stocking more than 700 varieties of Herbaceous Perennials, shrubs, vegetable plants, trees, ferns, roses, hedging and bog plants.

But what hasn’t changed is Peter’s wish to provide customers with the best possible range of plants along with friendly, personal service.
